Is your Teen looking for a fun water based sport for this summer? This high-energy Competitive Team Program will focus on sprint technique, strength training, and speed paddling.

A great sport for kids who enjoy the independence of solo-paddling but also enjoy the camaraderie of working on a team.

Suitable for paddlers aged 12-16. No previous paddling experience required but novice paddlers may benefit from taking the Recreational program first to build up skill using the boats and stamina.

Athletes will learn both Canoe & Kayak skills and train in single (C1/K1), doubles (C2/k2) and team boats (C4).

Paddlers will be training for competitive sprint paddling; if interested, athletes will have the opportunity to
attend Regattas or BC Summer Games.

** Prince George athletes wanting to compete in the 2020 BC Summer Games in Maple Ridge must register in this Program and the BC Summer Games Program. Please discuss eligibility requirements with the club. Athletes from other communities in Zone 8 must discuss their training program with the club.
